New Heroes of Comedy
4 April 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was a documentary series about the comic actors/actresses that have shaped comedy in the modern time. The programme basically showed an individual, duo or group comedy act and their journey to stardom, whether from radio, TV, stage or film, or all. With contributions from David Baddiel, Richard Curtis and Russell Brand. Acts so far focused in this programme have been The Office and Extras star Ricky Gervais, Little Britain stars Matt Lucas and David Walliams, and Ali G and Borat creator and star Sacha Baron Cohen. I look forward to seeing more of today's big comedians and their journey to stardom, and also I like to see the classic clips of their work. Very good!
